Linoleum Block Relief Prints, are also called linocuts. Each piece starts with a Linoleum Block. The linoleum surface is carved away to create the image, then the remaining surface is inked with oil based ink. Watercolor paper is placed on top and pressed by hand to print the image. Afterward the print is hand colored with watercolors, mixed from dry pigments, to create rich, saturated colors.
Collography is a much more diverse medium. A plate or substrate made of wood is used as the base. The image is built on the plate with numerous and varied materials and adhesive mediums. Once created, the collograph plate is inked once or multiple times and run through a press. Creating collagraph images is extremely freeing and expressive, allowing great variation in texture.
